Regular dental checkups are essential for maintaining positive oral health. We recommend our patients visit us for a dental checkup in Centreville at least twice a year to ensure that no new problems or issues have developed.
Your regular visits to our dental office in Centreville give us an opportunity to provide a thorough examination of your teeth and mouth, and when necessary, provide recommendations. At Skinner & Ossakow D.D.S. and Associates, we work hard to ensure that your visits are not stressful or uncomfortable. Scheduling visits is easy with our block scheduling, extended hours and Saturday appointments. We also encourage you to ask about financing options.
Our regular checkups include a thorough examination, an oral cancer screening and traditional X-rays.
During your exam, we will take a careful look at your teeth and mouth. The patient’s gums are also closely examined to look for signs of gum disease. This is the best way for us to make a proper assessment of oral health and to make any necessary recommendations.
A professional teeth cleaning is a treatment process that allows us to remove plaque and bacteria from the teeth. Our hygienist uses special dental tools to scrape away any buildups. We then polish the teeth to remove surface stains.
Oral cancer is best treated when caught early, so we take the time to provide a screening during your regular dental checkup. We'll examine the tongue, throat, gums and other oral tissues for any signs or symptoms of oral cancer.
By using digital X-rays, we can get a detailed look at the hidden areas of the mouth. This allows us to detect many issues that would otherwise go unnoticed.
